Flower flying

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The Christmas cactus is starting to bloom.  Amazing how fast the little buds turn into these complicated floral displays.  This image was made using light painting techniques.  I held the shutter open and waved a small LED flashlight over the bloom from different directions.  Then in Photoshop I stacked two of the images with the most interesting lighting and blended them together to create this image.  The texture, color and dimensionality of the bloom makes it look like a strange insect was caught in flight.
